Our Policies and Procedures
As Early Childhood Educators, we are committed to providing quality teaching and learning programmes designed to develop skills, knowledge and attitudes that support and actively promote children's growth/development in the areas of:
- social skills
- technology, etc.
At Fairview Park Pre-school we believe that:
- the relationship between home and Pre-school supports and enhances children's learning.
- children are individuals and develop in different ways and at different times.
- children learn best in an environment that recognises the importance of play whilst also providing planned activities/experiences
- designed to develop certain skills, knowledge and attitudes
- technology is a part of children's every day life and is important for their future
- children have the right to be in a safe and caring learning environment which respects social and cultural diversity
- practices related to responsible environmental management begin at an early age
- learning is continuous and encompasses experiences from home, school, etc
- the role of the staff is to facilitate support, monitor and assess children's learning
We aim to encourage and further develop:
- self confidence and consideration for others
- independence and building meaningful relationships with staff and other children
- a positive attitude to learning and a willingness to complete a task
- decision making and problem solving skills
- the ability to work with others whilst making an individual contribution
- gross and fine motor co-ordination skills
- early literacy and numeracy skills
- individuality and creativeness
- an appreciation of technology including basic computing knowledge and skills

In the Centre we use the same Behaviour Management Policy as the rest of the school which aims to assist children in accepting responsibility for their own behaviour and to ensure a safe, caring environment. We spend time discussing and establishing rules for safety and well being in the Centre. Our rules include:-
- Playing and working peacefully and co-operatively
- Respecting other's feelings and property
- Listening to other people when it is their turn to speak
- Walking inside
